Like many of our projects over the years our External Lime Pointing Services in Cornwall show off a historic buildings natural beauty providing it with breathability and sustainability.
Areas of damp in old buildings in Cornwall can often be a result of impermeable claddings and pointing such as cement.
Damp limitation was priority for this property so drainage was established, vegetation removed and the newly introduced cement pointing was removed by hand. The roof was replaced and the water run system implemented.
The common binder for the stonework on this property was, in part, earth. Care was taken to remove the old lime and cement.
A blended sand and NHL Lime mortar was re-introduced to re-point this farmhouse with great results.
